Re: Contest #1 - Entry contest [Cat. 3] - Voting

First of all, some general remarks: A lot of the classic routes were created in either the Benelux or the region around Roubaix. And although the routes in itself were pretty nice I didn’t consider them very suited for this contest, for 2 reasons. As for preparation races, I think the weather isn’t ...

Re: Contest #1 - Entry contest [Cat. 3]

Just a quick question: are these races we make meant to take place only this year, as a replacement for the cancelled ones, or should they be made considering the calendar in a ‘normal’ year? (Basically I just want to know if it would be stupid or not to make a race in the Americas. Right now it’s n...

Re: Contest #5 - Giro d'Italia - Voting

To me it was very important that this route had to be made for the month of October, so it couldn’t be the same parcours as any other Giro. You had to actually make changes considering this, and adapt your routes accordingly. Even though the rules allowed it, I personally did not accept climbs above...

Deciding my top 5 wasn’t easy. A lot of people made some great and interesting races, but in the context of this particular contest, I wasn’t always satisfied. To pick my top 5 I eventually made a points scale, where everyone started with the same amount of points, and I simply deducted some every t...

Re: Contest #3 - Grand Tour of the Grand Tours - VOTING

To decide my votes I made a first selection based on the general map and my first impressions. That left me with 8 or 9 routes, and then I just had to look a bit more into the details, and this is what came out eventually: 5th place: sportdani19 Not every stage was to my liking, but I think your tou...

Re: Contest #2 - Benelux Cobbled Classics

I made it my own challenge to make every race have its key-parts in a different region, so a lot of these classics have completely different climbs/cobbles than they do in real life.

I had some doubts about even voting for this contest. I feel like a lot of people didn’t even try (or simply forgot?) to follow all the rules that were laid out for this contest (18 Merckx-victories, 23 days of racing etc.)...
